What is Consumer Fraud?

Consumer fraud occurs when a business or corporation uses illegal or unethical tactics that cause harm to consumers. Some examples include: 

A business misrepresents an item they are selling, such as promising certain health benefits that are not factual. 

Businesses advertise goods at one price, then charge something else, or add on costs not previously disclosed. 

A manufacturer sells a defective product or fails to warn consumers of possible dangers. 

Skimming your name, bank account, or credit card information through data mining. 

A lender/company promises loan modification, money-back guarantee, advises you to stop paying, advises you not to contact your mortgage servicer, or asks you to sign papers you don’t understand. 

A fake charity contacts you and pressures you to make donations via cash, wire transfer, or credit card. 

Scammers pose as debt collectors and demand payment. The scammer will pressure you to pay or may threaten you.
